Flower 1

Flower 1, originally uploaded by Shiny Things.

A quick photo of a flower that’s sitting on my balcony at the moment. The light was kinda low, and the lens I’m using (the Canon EF-S 17-85mm IS USM) isn’t all that fast, so I had to compromise on the shutter speed - still turned out reasonably well, though.

It’s times like this you really want the 50mm f1.4 USM prime lens for those few extra f-stops… but… it’s $800.
